The Science of Cold Sores & How CSoreX Works
The Bad News
If you have the cold sore virus (Herpes Simplex Virus 1 or HSV-1) in your body, unfortunately, you’re stuck with it. Yes, that’s the bad news. Cold sores occur when HSV-1 activates in your body, usually triggered by a stressor, like certain foods, emotional/physical stress, fever, colds, allergies, menstruation, sunlight, sunburn, dehydration or local skin trauma—not exactly things you can avoid in life.
Once triggered, the virus fuses with your cells, injects its DNA, and tricks your own cells into creating more viruses. These viruses infect other cells, and the process repeats again and again, causing you to get a painful, embarrassing outbreak. The vicious cycle continues for several days, prolonging your outbreak with new active viruses. That’s why cold sores last so long. They can’t heal while active viruses are replicating.
The Good News
While there are no known cures for HSV-1, CSoreX is a proven viral fusion inhibitor*, so it stops the virus’s fusion process. If the virus can’t fuse with your cells, it can’t replicate, and the healing process begins—making your cold sore go away faster.
Even better than quickly eliminating your current outbreak…
CSoreX is formulated to be taken every day to prevent viral fusion before it starts, so your body is always armed with an extra layer of protection against the HSV-1 virus. If we can prevent the virus from fusing to your cells in the first place, even when your body’s natural defense systems are impaired by the inevitable stressors, we can effectively prevent cold sore outbreaks altogether.
No more cold sores ever again. How does that sound?
